Storyline

Ma and Jen hardly notice the mustache Alex grows for the homecoming speech as former valedictorian in Harding High-school. Skippy hopes Mal just uses Nick to make him jealous, but of course she refuses to go with him to the homecoming dance; the sweet pup is heart-broken but convinces Alex to find him a blind date, any human female will do- it's Dr. Sylvia Wagner, a divorced psychiatrist who is researching adolescent social life and sees him as a voluntary study subject, even for him no catch but they go, hoping absurdly to make Mallory a bit jealous. Nick hates anything involving ties or school, the ball is both. Alex's speech refers repeatedly to facial hair. After vague encouragement from Sylvia, Skippy picks a fight with patient Nick for Mallory, who rejects him since 18 years; grumpy principal Bidney blames both and Alex, who only tried to separate them...
